Hi, I'm Monica! I'm a software engineer who is passionate about making open-source more accessible and building community, online & offline. I enjoy teaching and inspiring other technologists by creating approachable learning material whether through a combination of open-source, articles, Egghead tutorials or public speaking. For work, I am currently focused on improving the classroom experience for educators and students, and in a previous role I worked on improving the e-book experience for public libraries through NYPL-Simplified. Outside of work I am the organizer/founder of React Ladies, a community for women and non-binary ReactJS developers.

Every year I look forward to celebrating Hacktoberfest in October 🎃 as it's a huge opportunity to welcome first-time contributors to open-source. Last year for Hacktoberfest I organized a React Ladies event to introduce our community to Hacktoberfest and encourage open-source contributions.

Supporting me on GitHub directly supports my ongoing efforts to create educational web development related-content and contribute to open-source. Some topics I've written tutorials about have included: automating file creation with JavaScript, creating a Grey's Anatomy themed Lorem Ipsum Generator and adding search functionality to a Gatsby blog. I've also contributed documentation and accessibility related improvements to GatsbyJS, NextJS, ReactJS, RedwoodJS, freeCodeCamp and dev.to.

Thank you for your support!
